When Mj bounces a message for approval, it includes the original headers
as part of the message, even though icky-sticky-gooey mail readers
may not show you these headers (in violation of e-mail RFCs). What is
expected by Mj is that the Approved: header is inserted before the
original headers. That will cause the received headers (from your
mailing to Mj with the Approved: header inserted) to be discarded and
the headers found following the Approved: header to be used when the
original mail is resent to the list.
If your mail reader doesn't show you the original headers as the
beginning of the bounced mail, then you will have to fake a Subject:
header after your Approved: header (and any others, like From:). Leaving
a blank line after your Approved: header merely indicates the end of
the embedded headers and the beginning of the original body. Failure to
insert a blank line results in part of the body being interpreted as
